Presidential Library Bill Stalls In Senate; Cullerton Says More Time Needed For Study


House Speaker Mike Madigan's proposal to turn the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum into a standalone state agency will not pass the General Assembly this spring.

 

As 970 WMAY News was the first to report, a spokesperson says Senate President John Cullerton will not call the bill.  She says Cullerton believes more study of the proposal is needed.

 

Madigan had wanted to take the library and museum away from the control of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, because he says that agency is inhibiting hiring and acquisitions.  Madigan said creating a separate agency would be revenue-neutral, a claim denied by IHPA.

 

The bill remains in the Senate, and could be revived during the fall veto session.
